Customer Question
I have an 8...

I have an 8 year old corgi mix. She is a little over weight and working on reducing her weight. This morning I noticed how quiet she was, and not alot of energy to her when I took her for a walk. She eat fine. Her one eye is half shut at times and when it is open appears to be roliing back to her head. Now her other eye appears at times to be rolling when she is sitting and looking up at me. Her mouth is slightly open and it appears to me that she might be in pain. if someone comes to the door then she acts fine. I don't know what to do. Her vet is not open today, but tomorrow morning was going to make an appointment. Also her one eye that is semi closed closed is very red when it does open.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
